    Focus on academic language

    OLDAE is informed by the 85-million-word Oxford Corpus of Academic English and shows how English words are used in different ways across academic subject areas, such as the humanities and the physical, life and social sciences.

    It includes 22,000 words, phrases and meanings, over 50,000 corpus-based examples and a range of usage notes with information on collocations, synonyms and other language points.
